Agent Dybala? Paul Pogba is linking up with his ex-Juventus team-mate with the Frenchman heavily linked with a return to Turin after leaving Man United… but the Argentine might not be there to welcome his this summer!

  • Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United after six years of free transfer
  • Juventus, the player’s former club, would be his most likely destination
  • Paulo Dybala will leave Juventus this summer after failing to agree a new deal
  • Serie A rivals Inter Milan are believed to be circling the Argentine striker

Paul Pogba has been pictured with former Juventus team-mate Paulo Dybala, fueling speculation he will return to Turin this summer.

Both players are out of contract this summer with their respective clubs. Pogba and Dybala are expected to miss each other at Juventus as the midfielder returns to northern Italy during Dybala’s departure.

Dybala waved an emotional goodbye at the Allianz Arena at the end of the Serie A season, showing that despite failing to reach an agreement on a new deal, he still holds Juventus close to his heart.

As such, Pogba posting a picture of himself alongside the Argentine on his Instagram only sought to increase speculation that he will be playing his football at Juventus again next season.

Captioning a collection of photos coyly with the word ‘push’, Pogba’s post prompted a flurry of responses telling him to come to Juventus or welcome him, perhaps prematurely, to Juventus.

The bond between the two players, however, appears to have been just as a friend with Dybala known to leave the club in the summer.

After a string of injury-plagued seasons, the Argentine, who was once seen as the Italian giants’ big white hope, and Juventus have failed to agree on a new deal. Dybala is expected to stay in Italy with Inter Milan.

He cut a hugely emotional figure in his final home appearance for Juventus, leading his side on a lap of honor around the pitch as tears streamed down his face.

Pogba’s departure from Manchester United was less emotional, with fans and the player experiencing something of a relationship breakdown in the final months of the Frenchman’s second stint at the club.

He was booed by part of the Old Trafford crowd when he walked off the pitch in a 3-2 win over Norwich in April.

Meanwhile, after lasting just five minutes in Manchester United’s 4-0 loss at Anfield in April, the away section didn’t seem to like Pogba’s decision to leave, booing him as he was leaving the playground.

Arrived from Juventus in 2016 to much fanfare and for a fee of £89m, it was hoped Pogba would transform the club in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson years.

That was not to be the case, however, and it looks like the Frenchman will return to Juventus and Italy.
